Here is how it works: Laugh and Link Up!

The Dig

After having dug to a depth of 10 feet last year, French scientists found traces of copper wire dating back 200 years and came to the conclusion that their ancestors already had a telephone network more than 150 years ago.

Not to be outdone by the French: in the weeks that followed, American archaeologists dug to a depth of 20 feet before finding traces of copper wire.

Shortly afterwards, they published an article in the New York Times saying : “American archaeologists, having found traces of 250-year-old copper wire, have concluded that their ancestors already had an advanced high-tech communications network 50 years earlier than the French.”

A few weeks later, ‘The British Archaeological Society of Northern England’ reported the following: “After digging down to a depth of 33 feet in the Skipton area of North Yorkshire in 2013, Charlie Hardcastle, a self-taught local amateur archaeologist, reported that he had found absolutely bugger all.

Charlie has therefore concluded that 250 years ago, Britain had already gone wireless.”

Just makes me bloody proud to be British. 😯
